March 02, 2020
Valentine’s Day has come and gone and many of us cat lovers most likely spoiled our feline family members on that special day. The people at Reveal Pet Food think your feline friends deserve to be spoiled all year round! It can be difficult to think of ways to lavish love on your pet when you are so busy raising kids, holding down a job and running a household, so here we are to the rescue, describing five simple ways to share the love with your cat, 365 days a year!
TREAT THEM TO A NEW TOY
A fun way to share the love with your cat is to get them a brand new toy you can play with and enjoy together. From scratch posts to wooden puzzles that will test your cats intelligence, the online marketplace is brimming with unique and interesting toys to keep your cat amused and feeling as special as they should. Playing with toys provides an outlet for your cat’s predatory instincts, provides exercise for them and will relieve their boredom too. This will make sure their weight stays in check, reducing the chances of future health problems whilst ensuring behavioural problems due to boredom are minimized.
LOTS OF SNUGGLES AND CUDDLES
Cuddling and snuggling is something both cats and humans learned to do as kittens and babies to feel safe and warm and whenever we do it again as adults, the same feelings of warmth and security are reignited. Snuggling with your cat will promote the bond between the two of you and make your kitty feel truly loved. Snuggling with your cat will not just promote their health and well-being, it’s also a great way for you to feel less stressed, reduce anxiety and generally improve your mental health.
COMMUNICATING IS KEY
Have you ever wondered why your cat blinks slowly at you? This is a non-verbal form of communication showing they completely trust and love you and guess what, you can do it back to them to show them how much you love them too! These ‘cat-kisses’ are a fantastic way to communicate with your feline friend and will intensify the love and bonding between the two of you, improving not just your cat’s well-being, but yours too!
REGULAR HEALTH CHECKUPS
Taking your cat to the vet at least once a year, plus doing treatments at home to look after their health is imperative to good cat health and therefore well-being. We're All About Cats recommend using deworming products three times a year as well as using a flea treatment once a month. Scratch posts will keep their claw healthy by removing dead layers and giving brushing them can get rid of excess hair, meaning the chances of them getting a furball is a lot less likely.
DELICIOUS FOOD + HEALTHY TREATS
Choosing what food to give your fur-baby is vitally important for their health and well-being. Cats are obligate carnivores and require high volumes of protein in their diet to survive. Taurine is an incredibly important chemical which cats need to look after their eyes, digestive system and heart and so finding a cat food product that is enriched with high volumes of protein and taurine is vital. Reveal Cat Food creates 100% natural, limited ingredient products that offer a great choice when it comes to feeding your cat. You can see every ingredient that is included in the pack, plus they do not bulk out their pots and cans with grains, cereals and other fillers. They also offer healthy single ingredient treats which are completely free from preservatives and additives, meaning you can treat your cat any time - guilt free.
